Bite Size Baking



I started out with all pre packaged ingredients for my Muffin Pizzas.  I rolled out the dough and used a biscuit cutter to make the rounds.  Put them into the wells and topped them with jarred pizza sauce.


They were the perfect size for one pepperoni each.  Then I topped then with some shredded mozzarella cheese and popped them into the oven.


Five minutes to put together, 10 minutes in the oven, 10 minutes to cool and you are eating these perfect snack size pizzas in less than half an hour.  


We enjoyed these for lunch one day and then the teen snacked on the leftovers during the evening.  I adapted this recipe from one found in Cuisine at home.  They cooked their dough first, filled it and then cooked it again.  Seemed like a lot of extra work to me so I skipped that part.

  7. Last week, I had a reader tell me that cheese like this was burnt. I'm glad that you and I are alike...it's not burnt...it's cooked perfectly. Cheese should be ooey gooey and browned and crispy on top!!! PERFECTION!
